The Music of the Night (Michael Crawford and Sarah Brightman)

The Music of the Night (Phamtom of Opera)

Composer: Andrew Lloyd Webber / Charles Hart
 

Nighttime sharpens, heightens each sensation
Darkness turns and wakes imagination
Silently the senses abandon their defenses

Slowly, gently, night unfurls its splendour
Grasp it, sense it, tremulous and tender
Turn your face away
from the garish light of day
turn your thoughts away from cold unfeeling light
and listen to the music of the night
close your eyes and surrender to your darkest dreams
purge your thoughts of the life you knew before
close your eyes at your spirit start to soar

and you'll live as you've never lived before
Softly, deftly, music shall caress you
Hear it, feel it, secretly possess you
Open up your mind, let your fantasies unwind
In this darkness that you know you cannot fight
The darkness of the music of the night

let your mind start a journey through a strange new world
leave all thoughts of the life you knew before
let your soul take you where you long to be

only then can you belong to me

Floating, falling, sweet intoxication
Touch me, trust me, savour each sensation
Let the dream begin, let your darker side give in
To the power of the music that I write
The power of the music of the night

You alone
can make my song take flight
help me make the music of the night
